Goal

Shipping Cost and Freight Charge are defined using Manage Shipping Charge Lists in Pricing. These charges are then calculated and applied as lines are added to a sales order.

A requirement has been identified to:

Enter freight charge at time of ship confirmation.
To have capability to capture the freight charge and for these to NOT be converted and to NOT be subjected to pricing calculation.
A more robust solution would also include the ability to interface to a third party carrier system where the third party does all the calculations and provides a final freight charge.

The use case is:

The Carrier provides the shipping freight charge either verbally, via email or from the carrier's online system or portal.
These Charges should be manually entered during the ship confirmation process in the ship confirm form. The ship confirm form allows users to enter shipping cost, type freight charge, the values are NOT passed to invoicing.
